by Jeb Bing

State Senators Ellen Corbett and Mark DeSaulnier have presented "Artist of the Year" awards to painters in their now-combined districts.

Corbett gave her award to Carolyn Lord, a watercolor artist who paints California landscapes, architecture and gardens, and also designs posters for the Livermore Valley Opera. A Tri-Valley artist, Lord has studied, taught and created art throughout the Bay Area.

DeSaulnier chose Pleasanton artist Linda Jeffrey Sailors for his award. She exhibits her art regularly at the Alameda County Fair, where she has won numerous awards including the Silver Award this year.

Sailors is a member of the Alamo-Danville Artists' Society, the Livermore Art Association and the Pleasanton Art League, where she now serves as its president.

She formerly served for 17 years in local elected and appointed positions, and is a founding member of the Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority, which operates the Wheels bus service.

The awards were presented at the Museum on Main in Pleasanton.
